The Rickenbacker 600 series features a rather unique shape, even for Rickenbacker guitars - this is known as the distinctive "cresting wave" style shape, as opposed to the more traditional "Twin Crescent" cutaways. Although less popular than it's more famous relatives (such as the 330 and 360), the 660 manages to offer the same electronics sytstem as the 300 series, resulting in that exquisite Rickenbacker sound and style, but in a unique looking package.
Classic Rock and Roll sensibility
This excellent solid-bodied guitar comes complete with a Charactered Maple body and neck, high-gain single-coil pickups, rosewood fretboard with those trademark Triangle inlays, a lacquered Ruby Red finish, and a single "Mono" output socket.
The high-output Single Coil pickups are designed along similar lines to the original Toaster pickups, only with a higher output that's more suited to today's musical needs. In addition to each pickup have it's own Volume and Tone controls, there's a Blend control knob.
This knob has several different functions, such as acting as a tone blender between the pickups and as a general Bass and Treble EQ for the guitar. It's primary function though, is to act as a volume equaliser for the bass pickup, boosting the usually quieter pickup to be of a comparatively equal volume to its treble counterpart.
A 12-string guitar produces a far richer tone than a standard six-string. The additional strings on the instrument are placed side-by-side with the traditional 6 strings, with only a narrow gap between them, and whilst the Top E and B strings are tuned in unison with their counterparts (essentially, doubling up), the 4 extra strings in the lower register are tuned to an octave higher than their own counterpart, making for a beautifully rich wash of sound even when playing the simplest of chords
